Anansi
Anansi
Here are two hilarious Jamaican folktales about the original story spinner himself. Anansi the spider is teeny-teeny, but his boasts are as tall as tales get. In the first story, Anansi takes Tiger's challenge and outwits the prideful snake to win possession of all the stories in the jungle. In the second, Anansi devises a scheme to appear important at his mother-in-law's funeral but gets caught in his own lies and winds up as bald as a mango. Your family will be intrigued by this hip spider and carried away by the captivating rhythms of the West Indies.
